Some Pro-Tips for you!
Like all other jewelry, toe rings also require proper care and storage. That way you can delay the tarnishing process. Here is a list of some of the things you have to keep in mind to keep your jewelry sparkle for a long time.
- Wear it regularly
To avoid tarnishing, simply wear your jewelry. The more often you wear, the longer you delay the tarnishing process. This is because the oils in your skin can help in cleaning the silver keeping it shiny.
- Avoid exposure
Keep your jewelry away from sunlight, harsh household chemicals and foods containing sulfur. It is also recommended to take off your silver jewelry before getting into the swimming pool as the chlorinated water can cause tarnishing. Also avoid contact with lotions, makeup products, perfumes and hair products.
- Store properly
Store your sterling silver toe rings preferably with an anti-tarnish strip in an airtight plastic bag or you could use silica gel, a packet of activated charcoal, or a chalk to keep air and moisture out. Avoid storing all your silver jewelry in the same place to prevent scratching with each other. Make sure to unclasp your chains and bracelets too.
Use any soft cloth to polish your silver and avoid using tissues or paper towels as they cause scratching. Polishing should be done in a back-and-forth motion rather than circular motions. For tiny, detailed parts, switch to a Q-tip.
- Get some professional care from time to time
For silver that is old, valuable or heavily tarnished, take them to a profession to have those cleaned.
- Avoid commercial silver cleaners
These do more harm than good by taking off the anti-tarnish coating and result in accelerated tarnishing. The vapors from such cleaners are toxic for our health too.
- Use DIY homemade cleaners
Instead of commercial cleaners, you can make your own homemade cleaners using basic ingredients in your pantry such as dish soap and water, baking soda and water, white vinegar and baking soda even olive oil and lemon juice
Frequently Ask Questions
- Which toe is best for wearing toe rings?
Toe rings are usually worn on the second toe. But you can wear in any toe you wish.
How do I find out my toe size?
You can find your toe size easily using the string method. Simply use a piece of string and circle it around the middle part of your toe as shown in the picture below. The same method can be used for your thumb, knuckle or pinky. Next, mark the parts of the string where the two ends meet and using a ruler, measure its length in millimeters. That number is your first size. Again, using the same method, measure the widest part of your toe pad. The next number is your second size. Finally, using these measurements, determine your size from a ring chart.
